C                    C            Am        G    
Someway, baby, it's part of me, apart from me.
        Am             F
you're laying waste to Halloween 
   C                                         Am             G
you xxxxed it friend, it's on it's head, it struck the street 
       Am             F
you're in Milwaukee, off your feet 

         F                                     Am   G   
and at once I knew I was not magnificent 
F                                Am  G
strayed above the highway aisle 
 F      Am        C           G
jagged vacance, thick with ice 
                Am       F      G     C   
I could see for miles, miles, miles 

C                                 Am  G
3rd and Lake it burnt away, the hallway 
    Am                  F
was where we learned to celebrate 
C                                Am       G
automatic bought the years you'd talk for me 
     Am                F
that night you played me ?Lip Parade? 
C                                   Am   G
not the needle, nor the thread, the lost decree 
       Am               F
saying nothing, that's enough for me 

       F                                   Am   G
And at once I knew I was not magnificent 
F                                 Am  G
hulled far from the highway aisle 
  F      Am         C        G
jagged, vacance, thick with ice
                Am      F      G     C
I could see for miles, miles, miles 

C                                       Am             G
Christmas night, it clutched the light, the hallow bright 
C                     G
above my brother, I and tangled spines 
                                         Am     G
we smoked the screen to make it what it was to be 
       Am              F
now to know it in my memory: 

        F                               Am     G
And at once I knew I was not magnificent 
 F                           Am  G
high above the highway aisle 
 F       Am       C          G
jagged vacance, thick with ice 
                Am     F      G     C
I could see for miles, miles, miles
